Chargers Thrilled With Addition of Explosive Meachem
Everyone knows quarterback Philip Rivers excels at throwing the deep ball, capable of making a big play every time he steps back in the pocket. That’s why he is perhaps happier than anyone else in the organization with the addition of Robert Meachem, one of the best in the business at converting those long passes into completions.

NFL Preseason Live: A Bad Deal for Locals - John Gennaro
In summary, NFL Preseason Live is just another way the NFL is milking money from its fans to watch pointless exhibition games. It's hardly useful at all, especially for Chargers fans, and Bolts fans have to pay the same amount for less live content than other NFL fans are receiving.
